Today we are going to look at Making Money With Google Blogger which is the largest free blogging domain on the web and has been for a very long time. Over the years I have created a number of websites with Blogger and some did really well and others not so much. In todays article we are going to look at the keys to making money with a free website and what it takes to succeed
Google Blogger Overview
Google Blogger is a free website platform where you can create your own blog or website free of charge. Unlike other free website platforms there are very few limitations placed on you and they do not advertise on your website. If you wish you can purchase a domain for your website but honestly there is really no need to do so.
Google Blogger – Keyword Research
A critical first step to starting a website or blog on any platform is keyword research. What you need to do before creating your website is to figure out what you want to write, what you want to promote and how much competition is out there for that topic. Without doing proper keyword research is going to put you at the bottom of Mount Everest and all of your hard work may be for nothing if you chose the wrong topic or niche. What we are hoping to find is a topic or niche that people have interest in but is not being promoted by every webmaster around. My death row site which is hosted on Blogger has very little competition and receives a fair amount of traffic each day however due to the violent content of the site it is difficult to make money off of it. So two out of three is not great
Google Blogger – Create A Website
The process for creating a website of blog on Google Blogger is pretty simple. As you can see from the screenshot above all you need to do is pick a name, pick a domain name and choose a theme for your website or blog. It is possible to download a free Blogger template from another site and upload it but for now we are just going to keep it as simple as possible. For demonstration purposes I just named my site Chronograph Watches with the domain name chronographwatchesreviews. All I have to do is hit create blog and within thirty seconds my new website is now live
Google Blogger – Main Pages
Affiliate Disclosure Template
In 2015, the Federal Trade Commission released their new rules for Disclosure Compliance. These
rules are set in place to ensure that readers or viewers of web media
(blogs, YouTube videos, etc.) know if the blogger/presenter is
sponsored, endorsed, or partnered with a different company. In blog
terms, the readers need to know if the blogger is making money by
sharing a link or product.
In compliance with the FTC guidelines, please assume the following
about links and posts on this site: Any/all the links YOURWEBSITE.com
are affiliate links of which I receive a small compensation from sales
of certain items.
What are affiliate links?
Purchases are made on external affiliate company websites: When a
reader clicks on an affiliate link located on .com to purchase an item,
the reader buys the item from the seller directly (not from
YOURWEBSITE.com). Amazon and/or other companies pay YOURWEBSITE.com a
small commission or other compensation for promoting their website or
products through their affiliate program.
Prices are exactly the same for you if your purchase is
through an affiliate link or a non-affiliate link. You will not pay more
by clicking through to the link.
I use two main types of affiliate programs:
1. Amazon affiliate links.
YOURWEBSITE.com is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC
Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide
a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking
to Amazon properties including, but not limited to, amazon.com. Amazon
offers a small commission on products sold through their affiliate
links. Each of your purchases via our Amazon affiliation links supports
our cause at no additional cost to you.
If a blogger links to an Amazon product (with a special code for
affiliates embedded in the link), and a reader places an item in their
“shopping cart” through that link within 24 hours of clicking the link,
the blogger gets a small percentage of the sale. Amazon links are not
“pay per click.” If you click on the product link and stay around Amazon
and purchase something else, however, I will get commission on that
Anytime you see a link that looks like astore.com/… or amazon.com… it can be assumed that it is an Amazon affiliate link.
2. Product affiliate links.
These affiliate links work the same way: if you click the link and
buy the product, then the blogger gets a percentage of the sale or some
other type of compensation. Things like e-book bundles, e-courses, and
online packages are usually affiliate links, as well. Again, prices
are not different if you use these affiliate links. You will not pay more by clicking through to the link. These links are not “pay per click”, unless otherwise denoted.
What about sponsored content?
I do not write sponsored posts. I want to bring you real, unbiased
information. However, if a post is sponsored by a company and it is a
paid sponsorship, I will disclose this clearly in the beginning of the

Google Blogger – Making Money With Google Blogger
Now it is time to make money and it is up to you how to do so. There are two popular ways make money at home with a free website and that is either affiliate marketing or an ad platform such as Google Adsense
One of the most common ways to make money online is with Affiliate Marketing. The best example of this is by creating reviews of Amazon products and receiving a commission when you send someone to Amazon and they purchase anything. There are a lot of ins and outs when it comes to affiliate marketing and if this is something that you are interested in I would suggest signing up for the Free membership at Wealthy Affiliate
The most popular Ad Platform network is Google Adsense and since you have decided to create a website or blog by Google it is pretty easy to get set up and approved. Now with that being said making money from Google Adsense is not that easy as it requires a good amount of traffic.
Google Blogger – Consistency And Patience
Now that the base of your new website and blog is created it is all about patience and consistency. Google is looking for a website or blog that posts on a regular basis before it is going to reward it with a good Google ranking. The days of creating thin websites are long gone and those who still believe in this method find themselves buried so deep in the search engine rankings you will never find them. It is also essential that you have patience as for a new website or blog it takes sometime before it is going to get ranked and for the traffic to your site or blog to increase.
Google Blogger – Social Networks
One of the easiest ways to get your new website or blog noticed is by sharing it in a variety of social networks such as Twitter, Facebook and Google Plus. I tend to use the three that I just mentioned on every post that I have created as it is a quick and easy way to create a back link and it helps the post to get ranked faster.
Google Webmaster Tools
With every website or blog that you create you should submit it to Google Webmaster Tools as this tells Google that it does exist. In order to do this you need to verify the website by placing a small code into the actual writing of the website. Just head for the editor and place the code below the head tag (Theme – Edit HTML)
Well there are the basics to creating a website with Google Blogger to make money at home. Make sure to check out other articles on makemoneyathomereviews.com to learn how to create Amazon reviews
